This is not a normal scene around this home.
This is a scene that makes me literally run to my camera, and break out the telephoto lens (so he won’t notice me). Beautiful. And I’m not talking just about this ‘Kodak moment’, but the unbelievably gorgeous autumn weather, and the deliciousness it brings. I have no doubt that ‘Autumn’ means different things for different people depending on where you live, and in stating that, I must say that I was born and raised in Central California where it is hot about 7 to 8 months out of the year, foggy for too many months in between, and nice, for way too short an amount of time ( at my age hot flashes make any winter weather not cool enough), a day like today is simply glorious.
This is not something, after all, that you will likely ever see again. I do believe that this could be called somewhat of an amazing ’phenomenon’, thus the importance for photographing the …shall we say…evidence. If I did not have these photographs, all would be vehemently denied, and we would never otherwise know of his secret green thumb. I’m on to you, Mr. Shortpants!
I am grateful for this splendid season, my loving family, and our beautiful home. Happy Fall!!!
